Golden Globe Awards host Ricky Gervais tears into Hollywood elite, Disney, Amazon, Apple
I really never cared for Raunchy Ricky, BUTT I must admit, last night at the Golden Globes; the boy took no prisoners.
Stars from films like “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” “Rocketman” and “The Irishman” as well as shows like “Big Little Lies,” “The Crown” and “Barry” were in attendance but the comedian and host was undeterred by the many famous faces staring back at him.
He called out the many stars in the room for their relationship to large corporations like Apple, Amazon and Disney.
Apple roared into the TV game with ‘The Morning Show,’ a superb drama about the importance of dignity and doing the right thing made by a company that runs sweatshops in China,” he said.” So you say you’re ‘woke’, but the companies you work for, Apple, Amazon, Disney… If ISIS had a streaming service you would be calling your agents.”
Gervais then mocked the stars in attendance for their relation to the late sex offender, Jeffrey Epstein. Gervais declared that Epstein didn’t kill himself, prompting groans from the crowd.
“Shut up, I know he’s your friend but I don’t care.”
“You all look lovely all dolled up, you came here in your limos. I came here in a limo and the license plate was made by Felicity Huffman,” he said to the crowd who cringed. “It’s her daughter I feel sorry for. That must be the most embarrassing thing that ever happened to her. And her dad was in ‘Wild Hogs,’ so…”
He also took a shot at Leonardo DiCaprio for his film “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” being three hours long.
“Leonardo DiCaprio attended the premiere and, by the end, his date was too old for him.”
He added: “Even Prince Andrew is like, ‘Come on Leo, mate. You’re nearly 50.”
Then the rest of the pathetics got to the podium and made fools of themselves, pontificating about politics. All these award show have turned into are opportunities given to The Choice Few to get up in front of the world and expound on their political view, that most of them know nothing about. It is JUST FASHIONABLE!!
You can bet there were a lot of high-brow celebs that walked out with their tails between their legs. Can’t help BUTT wonder if Ricky is going to get tapped to host next years awards show??
Most of the people attending those award shows are lefters that love conflict and controversy and did they get it last night, only in reverse.
As much as I don’t care for Ricky, BUTT I do give him credit to SHOOTING FROM THE HIP AND TELLING IT LIKE IT IS. The celebs he got down on needed an attitude adjustment.
